Do you use the Microsoft Outlook Add-in on your Windows PC to schedule your Lifesize meetings? If so, there’s a new update available that you may have voted for on the Lifesize community idea board.


You asked. You voted. And we listened. Our recent enhancement to the Lifesize Microsoft Outlook Add-in enables users to create meetings directly from their Outlook Calendar.


Previously with the Outlook Add-in, you could only schedule a meeting with an existing meeting room in Lifesize. Now, users can create and schedule a new meeting without ever leaving Outlook. To access this new feature, users must download the latest version of the Outlook Add-in.


Once installed, the Lifesize menu will display a new option to “Create Meeting”.

Users must enter a meeting name and optionally set a meeting passcode. Once saved, the new meeting will sync with your Lifesize meeting directory and will be available to schedule from your Outlook Calendar.

This is the first of many enhancements we are working on related to improved scheduling. Keep the ideas coming and vote for your favorite in Community!


Best regards,

The Lifesize team
